I sold my crappy Asus laptop earlier this week and I'm hoping to get a new laptop. The issue is that that the laptop has to be for both work and productivity so it is difficult for me to find one at my budget of $650. Im currently also upgrading my PC so it doesn't have to be particularly high performance but it also cannot be too expensive.


These are a few of my requirements

- Decent battery life of around 5 hours of web browsing

- Decent screen (1080p 60hz and decent colour is fine)

- Portable (Cannot be 17.3 inches and not too heavy)

- Be able to run games like Destiny 2 and BeamNG at 1080p 60fps


And here are a couple of my options (all are used)

- Dell G3 (i7-8750h, 8gb ram, 1050ti) - needs a new battery, ram upgrade

- Dell G7 (i7-8750h, 16gb ram, 1060 maxq) - overbudget, heavy as hell at 2.6 or 2.8kg?

- MSI GF63 Thin 9rc (i5-9300h, 8gb ram, 1650 maxq) - seems to have a couple of thermal/battery life issues according to reddit, needs ram upagrade

- MSI PS63 Modern (i7-8565u, 16gb ram, 1650 maxq) - overbudget, lower performance compared to other options

- Lenovo Legion Y530 (i7-8750h, 8gb ram, 1050ti) - needs ram upgrade

- Razer Blade 14 2016 (i7-6700hq, 16gb ram, 1060) - likely needs a new battery considering its age, and yea its old

- Asus TUF FX505GE (i7-8750h, 16gb ram, 1050ti) - guy selling it is a lil sus, battery life apparently sucks


Also available (too many to list out individual laptops)

- 7th-9th gen H series i5s and i7s + GTX 1050

- 8th-9th gen ULV i7s + MX350

- Ryzen 7 + Vega 10 iGPU
